All of the latest Liverpool news.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has said he’s confident he can lead England to a win in Montenegro. The national team take on the group leaders this evening and Gerrard has brushed off claims from the Montenegro coach that England are an arrogant and overrated side.

Jonjo Shelvey scored a beast of a free kick against Austria for England’s Under-21 side. Shelvey smashed the ball in from just outside the penalty area, which left the Austrian goalkeeper with no chance. The goal will do his confidence the world of good as he tries to get back into the Liverpool team.

Brendan Rodgers has paid tribute to midfielder Jordan Henderson. Rodgers has said the attitude and commitment the player has shown this season has made him realise he can count on him at all times. Henderson struggled to get into the side at the start of the season with rumours that he may leave Anfield.

Former Liverpool front man John Aldridge says Luis Suarez shouldn’t be criticised for admitting that he would leave Liverpool. Suarez recently revealed that he would consider a move away from the club to play in the Champions League, which Aldridge has described as a reasonable and logical decision.

Liverpool are thought to be in a battle against Manchester United to sign Jackson Martinez. Talksport has reported that the Colombian born Porto star is on the radar of both sides, which could trigger a bidding war this summer to secure his future after Portuguese football.

Jamie Carragher says he can’t wait to get back to business with Liverpool. Carragher has seen off a slight knock during the international break and his likely to take his place back in the side when the Premier League action returns this weekend. He’s revealed he’s happy with his performances this season.

Borussia Dortmund have entered the race to sign Liverpool and Inter Milan target Andreas Weimann. The Aston Villa star has been linked with a move to a bigger club due to his positive performances this season and the German champions have entered the race to sign him.

Jamie Carragher thinks Brendan Rodgers has brought style to the club this season. Rodgers took over as manager last summer and the side has played some of the best football in England, all be it inconsistently. Carragher says that is down to the manager’s methods.

John Aldridge has written in his local newspaper column that Liverpool have to fight over the rest of the season, as if they were in a relegation battle. The Kop legend suggests it’s the only way the club can have any chance of finishing the season in the top four.
